This is the $110 junkyard 83 240D Engine. i disassembled her today. the disassembly went very well, and the Bores miked at 3.58" (right off 3.581) and everything came apart well and looked good. The bores were pitted a little from rust.
Then when loading the block into my car so i could have a friend repeat the measurements, the bolt hoding the chain to block slipped through a chain link and the block fell about a foot, its fall broken by the hoist leg. No machined surfaces were scratched.
What are the Implications of the dropped block. Should I worry that I put a warp on it or deviation or something?
